We visited Culloden as tourists but felt that as we were not members of the National Trust, the cost of entering the displays etc was rather high. Rather disappointing as we had to pay for parking (in a field) as well as to enter the...More

There is something about a place that has seen so much. So much bloodshed, so much hurt. You can almost feel it seeping through the soil. It was a very heavy place to visit and I'm so thankful that I got to go. We spent...More

You can't visit this part of Scotland without a stop at the historic Culloden Battlefield. The visitor center is new with very user interactive displays. The real treat is walking the grounds and imagining the brutal battle between the Brits and Jacobites. The stone monuments...More

Knowing a little bit about the battlefield and Scottish history in the mid 1700's is helpful before going here but walking the battlefield is a very moving & solemn experience. The visitor centre is thoroughly modern, well stocked with gifts and with a decent cafeteria...More

If you're interested in Scottish history, or just an Outlander fan, this is a place to see. The visitor center has a nice walk through explanation of the history. The battlefield reminds me of Gettysburg back in the 1970's. Not much more than open lands...More

This was a wonderful activity for the midday. The visitor center was very informative, and tells the story leading up to Culloden from both the view of the Jacobites and the Whigs. Don’t forget to pick up the audio tour as it had a lot...More

With a (gory)film, museum exhibits, an interesting and entertaining role play presentation, and the battlefield itself, you can learn a lot about this era and moment in Scottish history. The whole experience is very moving. Don't miss it. In addition, they have an excellent gift...More
